Population and business growth create the need for new subdivisions and developments, and these place increasing demands on the assets and services provided by Council. As a result, significant investment in new or upgraded assets and services is required to mitigate the environmental effects and meet the demands of growth. In this policy, this investment is termed the cost of growth. Under Section 106 of the Local Government Act, Napier City Council can require development or financial contributions from developers to help fund the cost of new or expanded infrastructure and services that are required to meet the additional demand created by growth, and/or to avoid, remedy, or mitigate any adverse effects resulting from land development and subdivision. Council intends to achieve this in the short term by using Financial Contributions under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA91). This approach covers all types of development (residential and non-residential) and is a city-wide approach for development anywhere in Napier City.
